An East Amherst man who allegedly sexually abused numerous young children has been charged with several counts of felony sexual conduct and sexual abuse following an eight-month investigation, Amherst Detective Lt. Joseph A. LaCorte announced Monday.

The charges were brought against Ken F. Lee, 50, of Dodger Place, which is in a subdivision between Transit Road and Millersport Highway, LaCorte said.

Special Victims Unit Detectives Mark Pitirri and Cindy Herberger received information that led to an extensive investigation to confirm the allegations against Lee, LaCorte said.

“The victims ranged in age from 6 to 8 years old. There are numerous victims and anyone else with additional information please contact us,” LaCorte said.

The number to call is 689-1393.

Lee has been released on his own recognizance and is scheduled to return to court later this month.
